Photographer Terry Richardson Could Lose Millions After Being Dragged Into Lady GaGa Lawsuit!

Terry Richardson is just one of many to suffer damage at the hands of Lady Gaga!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but after Lady GaGa's lawsuit with an ex-employee, they could cost Terry Richardson MILLIONS!

The plaid-wearing photog, who was hired to capture the pop singer’s Monster Ball tour, is being dragged into a nasty legal battle between GaGa and her former secretary Jennifer O’Neill.

Jennifer claims she's owed 7,168 hours of overtime and $400,000 in damages, and believes Richardson's hundreds of thousands of behind the scenes photographs could prove her case.

Richardson lawyered up to keep the 142,000 photographs from entering into evidence because if used, the pics automatically become part of the public record. That means anyone and everyone would have access to pics and Terry wouldn't be able to collect royalty fees.

Steven Hurd, Richardson’s lawer, objected to the photos being used by saying:

"Mr. Richardson’s business and livelihood depend on the value of his photographs."

He also claimed that Terry would suffer “immeasurable financial loss” if the photos were unsealed.

Unfortunately, Richardson’s request to keep his pictures out of the dramz was denied by the judge presiding over the case.

Terry reportedly raked in $58 million from selling photos between June 2012 and June 2013, which puts into perspective the amount of money he could lose from this lawsuit.

Ouch! What a terribly mucky situation!

    Re: steve – Gaga should pay her, if not just for Terry. Did you see how much she made last year? This is beyond ridiculous. Richardson doesn't need this s**t.
    Gaga's unsolved problems are flowing over onto others.

    Re: @v@ – We don't know any of the details or specifics of this case in regards to what the current relationship is between Terry & Gaga with this lawsuit. How do you know Gaga hasn't already started working something out with Richardson? Get all the facts before you start acusing and judging please

    Gaga Is Great & She Needs To Tell Richardson To Go Fuck Himself & As Far As Miley Cyrus Goes Alice Cooper Would Side With Gaga & Tell Miley To Fuck Off & Act Her Own Age. Grace Jones May Start Talkin' About Miley.
